    dark fabric and quilting stencils?

    Hi ladies, I am having a problem. I have several quilts with dark borders that I want to stencil a quilting pattern on but I can't find anything that will show up so that I can see it to see on my machine. I know I am half blind but this is getting frustrating. What do you use and do you like it?

    I have a set of fabric pencils which are water soluble. They came in a pack of three different colours and one of them is white which is perfect for dark fabrics.

        If you are using an actual stencil, (as opposed to a pattern on paper, etc.) you may want to use one of these... its like a powder puff, if that makes sense.
